Mini monster bags

img_4335

I made trick-or-treat bags for the nieces and nephews and had small balls of yarn left over. I was tapping my iPhone against my chin trying to figure out what I was going to do with the scraps when it hit me – mini monster bags. And it turns out these fun little bags are just the right size for candy or my cell phone.

To make these pint size bags you only need a few items and about 30-45 minutes
